Anaerobic or aaerobic?

Anaerobic---> Respiring with no oxygen , or very little this occurs in short bursts of exercise.The heart cannot supply the muscles wth sufficient oxygen or blood that the cells require, lactic acid builds up.

Aerobic --->respiration with oxygen, the heart can supply the muscles with blood and oxygen as fasts as the cells need it. This is used in steady moderated exercise.
